    My twitter is basically one giant sports bar. I follow a ton of baseball and football writers - basically every beat writer for every team, a whole lot of players and a whole lot of fans. Twitter is 100% the fastest and best way to get breaking sport news - just gotta make sure the verified checkmark is there.

    https://twitter.com/DSAVeterans
    https://twitter.com/DSA_Labor

    DSA Veterans is probably the best anti-war twitter account. Need more of those if yall got any.

    Left media
    https://twitter.com/jacobinmag
    https://twitter.com/telesurenglish
    https://twitter.com/curaffairs

    Jacobin and Current Affairs are US focused, teleSUR focuses on Latin America.

    Important peeps that pass the rampant purity testing
    https://twitter.com/profwolff
    https://twitter.com/CynthiaNixon
    https://twitter.com/Ocasio2018
    https://twitter.com/SenSanders

    Richard D. Wolff is an economist, the rest are the faces of DemSocialism.

    Comedy
    https://twitter.com/dril
    https://twitter.com/existentialcoms

    Dril is hard to explain, Existential Comics is philosophy humor with a lot of communist propaganda.
